“Beautiful ocean view”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

Rooms are clean and comfortable -- check out the pancake machine for breakfast -- walls between rooms allow a lot of noise to go back and forth, and the noise that was coming up from the pool was distracting as well. The facility is open, and the staff pay attention to detail. The snickerdoodles on check in were exactly what I needed after that long, long drive!

Great hotel, clean room. We stay here often on our way to Southern California and on the return home to break up the trip and give ourselves a special time at the beach. Only regret...didn't stay longer!

We stayed in Room 225 - an end unit directly facing the Ocean on the 2nd floor. The room was recently remodeled and the finishes were lovely. The property is immaculately maintained. Breakfast was plenty filling with a cool pancake machine to delight the kids and hard boiled eggs, yogurt and sausage breakfast sandwiches for protein. We also saw Dolphins from our balcony a few times.

You are within walking distance of downtown Pismo and the beach - but you do have to walk along the main road a bit.

There is a nicely equipped exercise room that didn't seem to get a lot of use - it's also easy to find a great jogging route along the coast.

Room Tip: 2nd floor ocean view in the main building where the lobby is...

Loved the stunning view of the sunset from the gazebo , the lush landscaping and the gorgeous ocean view from my room. An ideal Sunday morning was spent sipping coffee on my private patio and listening to the birds and the waves. Would go back for this experience alone.

We discovered this place quite by accident and Justin at the front desk really helped us with some nice room options. During our two week stay, front desk manager Valerie and front desk professionals Justin and Katie proved to be solid ambassadors of both the Best Western Shore Cliff Lodge and also Pismo Beach / surrounding area, culture, and vibe as a whole. Bravo to a front desk team that gets it right and continued getting it right during the two weeks we were there. And the views are wonderful, thanks to the scenic oceanfront beautifully landscaped grounds. We'll be regulars from now on.

Room Tip: There are many different room views and different buildings. Check for your preferences.

Beautiful hotel, great location, private decks overlooking the ocean, with a very attentive staff. Highly recommend this hotel. High quality linens and towels, which is always a plus for me. No beach access from this hotel but the most amazing views of the entire Pismo Beach area and ocean views. We saw dolphins and seals from our deck and we could see the entire Pismo Beach State Park Beaches.
